According to the Environmental Protection Agency, approximately 10% of homes experience plumbing leaks that waste more than 90 gallons of water per day. This is a problem that can be rectified by effective piping. The purpose of pipe upgrades and replacements is to prevent these leaks.
Leaks are an issue that constantly needs attention. In some cases, leaks can be detected through moisture marks or water on walls. However, many times, leaks occur under the floors, which means it takes longer to detect them. The best way to determine when or if you have a leak is by paying attention to your meter reads.
When there is a spike or if the meter is spinning when there is no water running, you may have a leak. If you have signs of leaky pipes, the best way to address them is with pipe upgrades and replacements. The professionals at Ward Plumbing, Heating, and Air can help. We have more than 45 years of experience, which provides us with the knowledge and expertise we need to ensure that you are 100% satisfied.
Our Plumbing Inspections can give you a clear picture of the overall health of your plumbing system, immediate plumbing needs, and potential future plumbing projects. During a plumbing inspection, our technicians check all of the areas where water flows into and out of your home, including pipes, faucets, toilets, sinks, and appliances.
There are several benefits offered by regular plumbing inspections, including:
- Improve water flow
- Cost-effective peace of mind
- Prevention of many plumbing emergencies, which lead to expensive repairs
- Replace potentially corroded galvanized pipes with new, updated pipe
Plumbing inspections should be done annually, as well as any time you do any renovations to a kitchen or bathroom, and when you purchase a new home.
When you do renovations, you’ll need at least 2 inspections: a rough-in inspection and a final checkup prior to connecting your fixtures and appliances.
While it’s not required to have an inspection prior to purchasing a new home, it’s important because if there are issues, you can usually negotiate the cost of the repairs out of the price with our inspection report.
